Credit Unions were founded on the principle of “people helping people.” It’s just one of the many things that make credit unions different from banks. Dort Financial Credit Union is proud of this difference and we’re eager to support people helping people in our community. Throughout this site, you’ll learn more about Dort Financial’s community involvement and ways you can be a part of helping our community. This is “Your Credit Union. Your Community.” Together, we can make a difference.
Dort Financial Credit Union is honored to announce they have been nominated and selected as a winner for the 2018 Governor’s Service Awards in the Corporate Community Leader category. The Governor’s Service Awards are given annually by the Governor of the State of Michigan to individuals, organizations and businesses to acknowledge their commitment to serving their communities through volunteerism. “This year’s winners have inspiring stories. They have made a tremendous impact on the lives of others through their service,” Gov. Rick Snyder said. “I am extremely grateful for the contributions they have made for Michigan and am honored to recognize their incredible accomplishments.”
In 2017 alone, Dort Financial Credit Union donated to, volunteered at, and/or participated in nearly 100 events and charities in the community. This has led to countless hours of volunteer work by employees, 45 pints of blood donated, and over $19,000 raised personally from employees and donated to charities. Dort Financial Credit Union does not implement a required volunteer program. The time that employees of the organization put towards charities are all in kind nature. Nearly continuous staff involvement goes extremely far in bettering the communities we live, work, attend school, worship and volunteer in.
